Birds & Science

We use the best available science to ensure the survival of Montana's birds and other wildlife.


Citizen Science Opportunities

You don’t need to be a professional biologist to contribute to science and have a great time doing it. Consider joining one of these citizen efforts and help provide valuable information of the birds, wildlife, and natural systems of Montana and beyond.

Chirstmas Bird Count

Over 30 Christmas Bird Counts (CBC) will take place in Montana this winter. The CBC is the longest running citizen science program on earth and is coordinated by National Audubon. Plan to join a count in Montana this winter, which will take place between Dec. 14, 2018 and January 5, 2019.

Learn more about the CBC program here.
